CAMbrella’s Final Conference

29 November 2012, Brussels

The Roadmap for European CAM Research

Estimates suggest that 150 million Europeans use CAM (Complementary and Alternative Medicine) annually but reliable data are scarce. CAM is defined in various and sometimes contradictory ways within Europe and the national legal status of CAM is sometimes unclear. The overall goals of the FP7-funded coordination project CAMbrella are to describe the situation of CAM in the EU and based on this to propose a roadmap for future CAM research.

Participation in this event will be limited and thus by invitation only. Please contact us if you are interested to participate (there is no registration fee).
